Deborah gives an overview of the book:

  There are a handful of places on earth where the ocean’s huge waves curl in a form perfect enough to hurtle a steel-nerved athlete on the ride of a lifetime. From November to February, the north shores of the Hawaiian Islands beckon to surfers the way Everest calls to climbers. A new client invites Storm Kayama to O‘ahu’s North Shore for a surf contest, and she jumps at the chance. But when one of the surfers receives a wooden club encircled with shark’s teeth, Storm recognizes the implied menace of the gift. The lei o manō is a call to battle. As if she were in the green room, the underwater space where tons of churning water can imprison a surfer, Storm is buffeted and disoriented by local legend, greed, and cutthroat competition. It is in this environment that Storm must confront not only a vicious killer but a haunting incident from her past.

Atkinson's lush third Storm Kayama adventure (after 2005's The Green Room ) finds the Hawaiian lawyer on the island of Moloka'i with her boyfriend, Ian Hamlin, hoping the trip will provide a much needed...

"The Moloka'i scenery is as vivid and appealing as the heroine, and authentic language and folklore make this a first-rate tale of greed, lust and retribution."
